An undisclosed Conservative member of parliament has been arrested on suspicion of sexual misconduct - on the same day Prime Minister Boris Johnson's called for the Cabinet to focus on crime.
The unnamed Tory MP was arrested by the Metropolitan Police on suspicion of "indecent assault, sexual assault, rape, abuse of a position of trust and misconduct in public office". The Met Police have asked the member, a man in his 50s, to abstain from attending parliament while the investigation is ongoing.
The arrest comes shortly after Johnson, 57, met with Cabinet members to address crime on Tuesday morning.
"What we're also doing is making sure that we give everybody the confidence that we are on their side when it comes to the law and comes to their experiences of crimes, particularly crimes of sexual and domestic violence," Johnson said to the Cabinet. "We want to see more prosecutions for those who engage in such crimes."
